NMB48 gets 1st nationwide CM 「ROUND1」×「NMB48」
NMB48, the x48 group from Osaka, has been chosen for the new CM of ROUND1, an amusement center where you can play various games and sports. The CM started broadcasting on September 26 and this is the first time that NMB48 gets to do a nationwide broadcasted CM.
The group has already done several CMs, including a promotion campaign for the switch to digital TV in Japan, but all those were regional ones broadcasted mainly in the girls home region, Kansai. But after their very successful debut in July it was only a matter of time for this to change.
Apart from the members appearing in the CM, NMB48's 2nd single Oh my God! was also chosen as the CM song.
The CM itself shows the NMB48 members having fun at ROUND1 as well as dance scenes of Oh my God. You can also see a short scene of the girls dressed as bowling pins.
You can check out the CM as well as bonus stuff like a making of and member interviews on the official campaign homepage: 「ROUND1」×「NMB48」Homepage
